Omicron. Contagious, yes. Deadly, not nearly so much as Delta.
Take it from someone who had it. It was rough for a couple days, but not severe enough to go to the hospital.
I’ve been vaxxed, so being exposed to it should build up immunity. Right, science?
So according to my own doctor, it will be March before I can get the booster.
Meanwhile, I still go out to the store masked.
I’m not so reckless I’m disregarding other’s safety. But life still goes on.
If that’s too much for some to deal with, if you still choose to live in fear,,,

That is on YOU. Plain and simple.

First fish tank cleaning solutions, then horse medicine, now it's Viagra Republicans are pushing as COVID treatments.

Yeah, they just keep making this situation harder and harder.

I tested positive today.

4 people have now tested positive from work in the last 10 days. This **** is contagious as ****. First developed the chills last Friday. Developed a very mild cough and some slight congestion over the weekend. Slight fever as well. Got tested yesterday and my results back today. I've had days with allergies that have been worse than this. Hoping and praying it continues to be that way.

I ‘m sure you’ll be fine. Yes, Omicron is contagious as anything, but the side effects aren’t as severe. Now you’ll have natural antibodies if a new strain comes along.

Got my booster this morning, and . . . it actually smart this time, unlike the first time, I didn't feel it, but this time, yeah, the injection actually stung a little.

At the moment, I already feel like I'd like to just curl up in a corner somewhere and take a nap, but then again, I've been a little under the weather for about a week with bronchitis, and coughing fits have been keeping me awake, so I'm a bit tired in general.

Oof, sorry to hear that. Hope you recover.

Thank you. Feeling much better. Still a little bit of lingering congestion but otherwise good. I will say this. The difference between COVID and allergies or a common cold is the fatigue. Never had fatigue like this.
